Rebuild of my 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger Xlt while i was in Rolling Fork, MS. 2005 A montage of pics i put together from this time, i purchased this vehicle while working on a dredge job. I was pulling a twelve hour shift at the jobsite and then working on the Bronco on my time off.
I had to purchase tools and such to do a complete rebuild from Wally World and the parts stores, I wasn't to happy with the quality of tools but hey I wasn't gonna make a trip to Dallas, TEXAS to get my personal tools.
As i started into what I thought was going to be a quick fix, my don't "do it halfway" complex took over every step of the way, and needless to say i opened up a real big can of worms. The end game was very rewarding as you may be able to see.
I used Gene Krupa and some music by The Meteors to help with the viewing.
I had a lot of support from my girlfriend Kim P at the time of the rebuild.
Questions and comments are welcome. just remember if you want to critique my work, "It is my truck and you aint got to ride in it"
Look for the other vid of the engine test run also.
Hank's '79 Bronco - The "Resur~WRECK~tion"
This is the preamble to Daisy's recent upload. My '79 Bronco rebuilt from
the ground up. Blood, sweat, and tears went into this rig. After flippin it
hard last year it took alot! This truck will not see pavement except to
test and load - she's made for the mud!! Front tires (44's) don't like to
stay on the ground, she wants to fly - and she will! More to come - soon...
Race season is here, time to kick butt!

The Phoenix: Ted Nugent Bronco [S5 Ep.3-3]
There is a saying that for every good side of something , there's also a
dark side. Today on GEARZ, Stacey goes there as he reveals what to do when
bad things happen to good projects. Using Ted Nugent's old broken down and
discarded Bronco as an example, he shows how to start over and re-kindle
the passion in a project that has been given up on by everybody else. If
your project has been stolen or stripped, or has become stranded by hard
times, sometimes all it needs is a little change of direction to get it to
rise out of the ashes and soar again. If Stacey can get Ted's old Bronco to
rise like a Phoenix out of the ashes and fly again, you can do the same
thing with your project too! You just have to roll up your sleeves and get
1979 Ford Bronco XLT 4x4
I thought you'd like a look at thie 1979 Ford Bronco XLT 4x4. This low
mileage original is powered by a 400M backed by a C6 automatic. It's sure
is looking tough in that black paint. It also has some nice aftermarket
bumpers and even a winch up front. Hope you like looking at it, thanks for

DOUBLE BRONCO 78 & 79 MUD ACTION !!
Double Bronco across the mud. The two tone is a 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger
XLT auto with a 460.
The silver one is a 1978 Ford Bronco Custom, 4 speed manual, 351M.
"Shu" would call me up and say "LETS GO FOR A DIG" no plates or anything.
The silver bronco was my first truck, and the vehicle I learned to drive
stick on. Randy was working the camera and doing commentary.
1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT Startup & Drive
Driving the 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT with the durable 351M (Cleveland)
V8 and C6 automatic transmission. I incorrectly mentioned in the video
that the transmission was a Borg-Warner...it's a C6 3-speed auto with a
Borg-Warner 4-wheel-drive transfer case. I have not had to use the 4-wheel
drive, but it is functional with high and low ranges, and like other period
4-wheel-drive systems, you have to manually lock and unlock the front hubs.
Even with over 130,000 miles, it still runs great and starts on the first
crank. When I got it I had to replace the battery, headlight and taillight
assemblies, windshield wipers, and repair the turn signal and reverse
switches to get it on the road again. The taillights were difficult to
find but LMC Truck took care of those. More work will be done to it in the
near future to bring it to better condition than it is now, but it has been
very well maintained and I really enjoy driving it. I wish new cars still
had the personality this one has!
A couple of other things: I have the radio antenna, but took it off since
it's too tall for my tiny garage, and the aftermarket radio will be gone as
soon as I can find a vintage Ford replacement on eBay. It also came with a
vintage Motorola CB radio which isn't shown, I put it in the glove box
since I usually plug my iPod into the cigarette lighter.
1979 Ford Bronco Hill Climb w/Flop
Making a new trail I like to call the "mini tank trap" in my 79' Ford
Bronco. I'm running 15x38.5x15 Boggers, 6" lift, Mile Marker 12k winch and
a Detroit locker in the rear.
